A Week of Work Experience

This week, Year 10 students participated in a Work Experience and Service Learning program to become further immersed in our local community. Students are placed in actual work or service situations in industries ranging from logistics, trades, education and pharmacy, enabling them to gain real-world experience through direct participation and observation.

 

ClassVR put to the test!

The Y8’s experienced a whole new reality when they experienced the VR sets for the first time! Check out their reactions when they were diving with sharks, riding the scariest roller coasters and even drove a F1 car when investigating their energies.

Enjoy the short videos!

Visit to Curtain University Chemistry Labs for the Year 12s

Yesterday, the Year 12  Chemistry students spent the day at Curtin University in the Chemistry labs. They got real life and hands on experience of chemistry at uni and in industry. They participated in a recrystallization laboratory, activities run by forensic chemists and toured the campus. They were also given a presentation by the ChemCentre and got a taste of the different roles that the ChemCentre are involved in.

Hurdling No Barrier

Year 10 students were left a little star struck after Commonwealth Games athletes Brianna Beahan and Ian Dewhurst dropped by to share some track tips.

The hurdling workshop helped students refine their skills and gain confidence in what can be a tricky sport. What better way to start practicing for next term’s Athletics Carnival than with the nation’s best!

ClassVR Learning

Students were able to virtually travel the world last week with some brand new Virtual Reality headsets! These ClassVR headsets enable students to go diving with sharks, explore the Great Wall of China and even create their own content without having to leave the classroom.

Using technology in a busy classroom isn’t always as easy as it should be. Imagine how difficult it could be to control 30 children wearing VR headsets!

The ClassVR interface and teacher control portal provide the simple to use tools needed to ensure this exciting and engaging technology can deliver a rich, reliable experience for students.

Exceptional Brush Work

In an exciting time for our Art Department, three St Stephen’s students have been selected to have their artworks showcased in the esteemed St George’s Art Exhibition.

16th annual exhibition of works by senior art students from Western Australian schools, displayed in Perth’s Gothic Revival Cathedral.

St George’s Art has become a premier annual event in art education in Western Australia, attracting schools from all sectors.  Participation in this exhibition provides an outstanding opportunity for schools to present work by students in Years 10, 11 and 12, in the unique setting of St George’s Cathedral.

Congratulations to the following students:

Bree Elliott – Year 10
Emi Radziwilska-Melzacka – Year 12
Courtney Shipham – Year 12
